Technically this is my second weekend in Wellington but I’m not counting the first weekend since I flew in, battled jet lag and got all settled into my new home. Not much of interest happened those couple days haha. Unless napping is of great interest; which come to think of it napping is probably my favorite hobby! lol
On Saturday I braved my first solo outing in New Zealand! The first trip is always the hardest right? And not that I’ve conquered that I’m looking forward to more adventures even if they are solo ones. I can’t ever remember using public transportation on my own before, I’ve always been grateful to have my own car or relied on my friends to figure out the public transportation when traveling haha. But finally at the age of 27 I used all those past experiences learning from friends to conquer the buses and trains all by myself! And it helps that Wellington has a pretty easy public transportation system too. 🙂

Part 2: It’s not often that you take the time to actually explore and tour your own hometown. This was my friend Hillary’s first trip to Kansas City and I had less than two days to show off the city of fountains!
We arrived in KC on Friday afternoon, but had to head straight for the rehearsal dinner so there wasn’t much sightseeing done on that day. But Hillary did get to see some lovely Missouri countryside on our drive from Excelsior Springs (where the rehearsal was) to Liberty (where the dinner was). Lots of hay bales in the rolling hills :). We had dinner in downtown LIberty which is a very charming little square and that was fun!
